But I just read a fascinating "Globe and Mail" article on heart disease prevention and thought I would post about it briefly. The article first discusses a new University of Minnesota study showing that cat people (I don’t care for the expression "cat owners") have a much lower chance of developing heart disease. Interestingly, dog owners aren’t as lucky (makes no sense, but there you go). Click here for the full story: http://tinyurl.com/24m4qy
There follows an interesting section on turmeric, the “spice of life” (no kidding!): “A new study involving laboratory mice suggests curcumin can dramatically reduce the chances of developing heart failure, a chronic illness that claims 40,000 Canadian lives a year.” Basically, when mice with big hearts (I have a big heart, too! Yikes!) were fed curcumin, “signs of the disease actually reversed.” How about that? This is news to me. Welcome news, too!
